On average, how many hours in a day do you spend playing video games? 
I do not really get much time to play video games on weekdays, as I work full time, but I get a few hours in here and there. On weekend I spend 8-14 hours playing games...But that is probbaly due to the fact I don't get to play them on weekdays, oh and cause I'm a total cool dude 8)

Are you single? That pretty much used to sound like me before I had my gf move in with me. 
Now I'm probably 5 hours to 7 hours a week maximum. Usually 60 minutes a day or less due to being so damn busy. Hopefully I can increase that over time though.

Quite a lot. 
And I mean, a lot. 
It consumes most of my unspent time. So, around 24 hours a week.

I have a bad habit of playing a game until completion in one sitting because I'm impatient. Other days I don't game at all. Mostly 10 hours a week.

The only games I seem to play atm are DS games..I just can't be bothered to start a game where I know I'm gonna have to sink a lot of time into.  I've got like 50 steam games to get into from this Christmas sale but I just can't be bothered...I'm to lazy to play games :(

During the week?? 3 -5 hours. And during the weekend it depends. Usually 4-5 hours total, but this weekend I didn't have shit to do so i got like 10 hours in, which is the most I have played on a weekend in a long time, it was soooooo good.

On average I play zero hours on the Weekdays(Except for Fridays when I play later on in the night.) 
 On Weekends It can be 5-6 hours depending on how much I have to do.

Working fulltime. On weekdays I'm happy if I can squeeze in 2-3 hours per evening. Weekends (if I'm not out drinking) I can easily put down 6-8 hours per day.
And my girlfriend is fine with that!

Weekdays I play like 2-4 hours, mostly pc stuff next to social stuff and work.
Weekends I play as much as I can without ignoring basic stuff like groceries/social coffee drinking and what not.

Normally, I play about 1-2 hours, but on weekends if I've got little to do, I'll play between 3-4 hours each day.

Usually after work or study, I try to game for a couple of hours a day; that is when I'm not flat out busy. I use the weekends as my gaming time, and then I could spend anywhere from 4 to 10 hours on Saturdays/Sundays.

I never said it was a good guess. I'm just saying it's at least that.

While work is quiet...a whole bucket load on my 360, mainly red dead online and Forza 3 with Mass effect 2 and Assassins Creed 2 still to be played. Maybe 30 hours plus a week.

Depends on the game. 
If it's really good then I usually power-game it up to 10-12 hours a day till I beat it. 
If it's just "okay" then about 5 hours, on and off.

Recently only about a half-hour of CS every night. I usually get a good 20-25 hours in a week though. This can vary wildly depending on time constraints and what games I have on the go.

Since I don't watch television all my entertainment is videogames. Wouldn't be a surprised if it was like 5 hours a day or more. That is when I don't have homework.

I used to play 4-7 hours a day, but then I got a girlfriend, and that dropped to about 2 hours a day. Now my girlfriend and I game together, making the average total about 4-5 hours a day on average. Yes I calculated this beforehand. Don't judge me.

It all depends if I got a new game or not.  Usually a couple hours a day.  Not as much as I used to.  Used to play games practicably all day when I was a kid.

Good to hear that I am normal. I usually can't get more than an hour a day. 5-7 hours a week and much less if it's a busy time at work.

Over the past year, an obscene amount. Absolutely obscene. Like more than when I was 10, 11, and 12 years old combined. I was put on disability and was pretty sick, so fuck it. I'm about to go back to work now, and while I'm very happy to be doing better and getting back out there, I must admit I'll miss being able to play video games literally all day, every day, and get away with it. It got old sometimes, but overall, it was pretty fucking awesome.

I normally dont actually play games that often recently, whenever I do get into a game I will just stay up late and play like 6-7 hours a couple of days in a row to beat it.

Between 0-1 hours. 6-12 hours if a new Valve or Double Fine game is out.
